The Expo
Katapult Pavilion is a creative industries expo organized by AGBU’s Katapult Creative Accelerator Program from March 31 – April 30, 2023 in partnership with Hay-Art Cultural Center and the ARé Performing Arts Festival.
This is Katapult’s flagship annual event and marketplace in Armenia to showcase products and projects spanning the creative sectors of fine arts, creative technologies, design, architecture, fashion, and print. Katapult Pavilion 2023 will feature six “Capsule Projects”: independently curated exhibits highlighting a sub-sector of the Creative Industries. In parallel, “Katapult Stage” gathers audiences around a vibrant one month program of events with conversations, performance and workshops.
Katapult Creative Accelerator Program is an EU funded project implemented by AGBU Armenia in partnership with Creative Armenia to catalyze Armenia’s creative economy.
The Theme
For its inaugural edition of Katapult Pavilion, we present “Scenius”, a term coined by musician and sound artist Brian Eno to convey, “the intelligence and intuition of a whole culture scene…the communal form of the concept of genius.” In the spirit of collectivity Katapult Pavilion is showing group projects and boasts 10 curatorial teams.
